Our event coordinator is happy to assist with planning an itinerary that accommodates your group.


McLemore Golf Course

Already established as a championship venue, the Highlands course takes full advantage of its unique, natural setting on Lookout Mountain, making it one of the most dynamic golf experience in the United States. Highlands was ranked "The Best Finishing Hole in American Golf" in the last 20 years by Golf Digest. After your round has completed, celebrate at their clubhouse. The Creag serves elevated comfort food that pairs well with curated wines & whiskeys from around the world, craft cocktails, and sweeping views of McLemore Cove.


Sweetens Cove Golf Club

Sweetens Cove was featured in The New York Times and ranked the 49th Modern Golf Course and the 21st Best Course You Can Play in the United States by Golfweek. Sweetens Cove Golf Club was handcrafted by King-Collins Golf Course Design. Borrowing architectural inspiration from some of the game's greatest layouts, King-Collins crafted a course that is reminiscent of the original version of Augusta National according to renowned golf writer and historian, Anthony Pioppi.


Trenton Golf Club

With stunning views of Lookout, Sand, and Fox Mountains you will have plenty of opportunities testing your accuracy with their fairways, water hazards, and sand traps. This course has everything you need to challenge you and improve your game.
